Burnaby Village Museum Pedestrian Bridge Replacement

March 1, 2024

The Burnaby Village Museum entrance bridge spans the Deer Lake brook, which connects a pedestrian path from the Burnaby Village Museum’s public parking and main administration/amenity building to the main attraction/village site. A condition assessment report indicated that the bridge was near the end of its service life, and replacement of the bridge was recommended. The proposed replacement bridge will consist of a 28 m-long, clear-span steel and concrete structure that is twice as wide as the existing bridge. The new, wider bridge will be constructed in the footprint of the existing bridge, thereby substantially minimizing areas of new riparian area disturbances.

Construction began in January 2024 and is expected to be completed by Summer 2024.

While the bridge is under construction, the main entrance will be closed to public. Visitors can still park in the main parking lot and walk around to the carousel entrance (5-7 minutes). View map [PDF - 2 MB].
